Angelina Pivarnick has been in the news a lot this week.
Primarily, that's because she might have single-handedly killed the Jersey Shore franchise by overreacting to her friends' speech at her wedding.
But we'd like to propose that Angeliner is newsworthy for a reason that has nothing to do with her nuptial tantrum:
Namely, she's looking more and more like Kim Kardashian every day.
Yes, Vinny might still think of her as the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island, but Angelina is looking more and more like Mrs. West every day.
Don't believe us?
Take a look at the pics below and see if you can tell them apart.
It might not be as easy as you think ...
1. Ange or Kim?
2. Does the Tatt Give It Away?
3. Who's Angry?
4. Iconic Figure
5. Give 'Em the Lip
6. Physique on Fleek
90 Day Fiance stars regularly publicly embarrass themselves on international television viewed by millions.
Could it possibly be worth it?
We have seen 90 Day Fiance stars bombarded with hate, both deserved and wildly undeserved.
Some become memes. Some become laughing stocks. Some get into trouble with the law.
Humiliation, emotional pain, and more. They have to get paid, right?
The short answer is: yes!
The 90 Day Fiance stars are paid.
Though fame has other financial benefits, as we will discuss in a moment, they are also paid for filming.
However, 90 Day Fiance is a little notorious in the reality TV world for how little it pays its stars.
Stars are paid on a per-episode basis, and they are of course not in every episode of each season.
And even the per-episode payout is not very impressive.
Imagining getting into a full-on brawl with the family of the love of your life ... for maybe $1,000.
We say "maybe" because it's reported that they pay $1,000 per couple, not per star.
At least, that's the starting rate, and it isn't believed to go up much if at all.
Of course, barely making five digits in a season might be fine for the people who are truly looking to find love.
No couple minds having somewhere from $5,000 to $12,000 fall into their lap.
But while some stories that play out on screen are about true love, others are more contentious -- and money can be a huge issue.
There have been grumblings from 90 Day Fiance stars who say that only their American spouse was paid.
The issue is that someone filming in the US without a work visa or legal citizenship cannot, legally, work -- so the couple is supposed to split it themselves.
In an ideal couple, this would not be an issue. But so many of these couples are far less than ideal.
Just weeks after Larissa Lima and Colt Johnson broke up in early 2019, Larissa accused Colt of robbing her blind.
She said that he not only kept a number of her belongings, from her wedding dress to her luggage and more, but that he withdrew cash.
She was left with enough money to go out to eat once in a country where she could not yet legally work.
Baby Girl Lisa Hamme and Usman Umar have also struggled with the division of money.
In June of 2020, they had a huge and public fight about dividing a check from the Cameo videos that they recorded for fans.
But one of the text conversations that Lisa shared showed that this was not the only issue.
After Usman had accused Lisa of calling him the N-word during the filming of the Tell All, she was fired from B90 Strikes Back.
In a text, Lisa appears to complain about Usman costing her $10,000 -- about what they might have made for the season.
That gives us further confirmation of about what a pair of stars can make in a season -- not bad, but definitely not a year's salary.
Now, how do we know how much the stars make? TLC has never confirmed this amount.
It all goes back to 90 Day Fiance fan favorites David and Annie Toborowsky.
As viewers may recall, they were down on their luck during their season and ended up crashing with one of David's friends.
Well, during a shocking moment, that friend of David asked Annie, on camera, if she could pay them back with a massage.
The predatory and racist connotations behind the request were obvious and appalling.
But David's friend went on social media and explained that he had only asked that question at the prompting of a producer, who wanted drama.
David's friend had never signed an NDA or been paid for appearing on camera, which he did as a favor to David.
So he and his wife were free to dish on anything and everything that they knew.
They revealed that David and Annie were each making $500 per episode, for a combined $1,000 per episode, and that this was the standard pay.
Of course, in addition to the whole "share our true love story" angle, there are other benefits to reality stardom besides the pay.
Which is good, since 90 Day Fiance pay seems to royally suck.
For one thing, with fame comes Instagram followers. With followers come sponsorship opportunities.
Instagram endorsements are simple.
The company sends you some products, for free, and you pose using, wearing, or simply presenting the product.
You include a blurb in your caption, and you make hundreds, thousands, or more for the post.
Sometimes, that means undergoing beauty treatments.
Getting haircuts, makeovers, lip fillers, and more can be documented on Instagram and shared with followers.
Larissa couldn't exactly document her anal bleaching last year, but she could pose at the location and caption "It's so pink now!"
Incidentally, Larissa ended up being unhappy with that treatment, and has since vowed to launch her own brand of anal bleaching.
Which brings us to the next topic: branding.
Reality stars can launch fashion lines, lingerie lines, makeup lines, and do all kinds of partnerships in order to rake in the dough.
A gig like that requires start-up capital, which means either having cash on hand or someone who is willing ot invest in that venture.
That's more likely to work with more established stars who have appeared on repeat seasons.
And then, of course, there are businesses that are designed to help reality stars make money -- while the business gets its cut.
Cameo is a video service in which stars give short, personalized video recordings of themselves that are made-to-order for paying fans.
Lisa Hamme received a check for over $26,000 just a few months after fans learned her name.
And simply speaking into a camera isn't the only way that 90 Day Fiance stars can earn money online.
Some 90 Day Fiance stars are joining OnlyFans, a site designed for adult media aimed at paying subscribers.
Not all stars are willing to strip down to bare their skin -- or do much more -- on camera, but that can be a real source of revenue.
So yes, 90 Day Fiance stars get paid, but guest stars often do so for free.
Mena Suvari is spreading positivity and joy on this Wednesday, she posted next to a street sign bearing a message of hope while on her hike.

When the world learned that Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her second child, the news was greeted with the usual elation and even more surprise than usual among Duggar fans.
Many had begun to suspect that Jinger would buck the family trend of raising unfathomably big families by closing up shop after the birth of her first.
But to the immense satisfaction of her grandkid-obsessed mother and father, Jinger revealed in May that she's expecting another daughter.
And apparently, Jinger is intent on balancing out the crappiness of 2020 by meeting every demand of both her family and her fans.
She's been updating more often than usual on Instagram, and she's delivering the kind of in-depth pregnancy updates Duggar diehards live for.
Of course, Jinger is still the family rebel, and her pregnancy posts feature her signature brand of refreshing honesty.
“It is hard to believe that I am already 18 weeks pregnant. Where has the time gone?” Jinger captioned this photo of herself and her 21-month-old daughter, Felicity.
“Morning sickness seems to be more like a thing of the past, and cravings haven’t been as intense as they were in those early days," she continued.
"I’m enjoying my maternity wardrobe and packing away clothes that no longer fit.”
From there, Jinger confessed that the long days of growing one little human in her belly while chasing another around the house are beginning to wear her down.
"I have felt a little more tired this week, making naps a necessary addition to my daily routine," she wrote.
"Can any of you pregnant mama’s relate? What is the second trimester like for you?"
Naturally, the "pregnant mamas" (and formerly pregnant mamas) who follow Jinger on Instagram were quick to chime in with kind words and support.
"I’m well beyond that stage of life, but I remember no pregnancy felt the same, and chasing after a toddler while expecting is a whole new ballgame," one fan recalled, adding:
"Take the naps."
"I will be 15 weeks tomorrow! Expecting my rainbow baby!!" another fan shared.
"My first time experiencing second trimester and love it! Naps are essential and snacking on celery have been my thing!" she added.
"First trimester was a rollercoaster of morning sickness but when people asked 'how I was doing?' I would say 'I can’t complain!'”
We're sure that's a feeling that Felicity's mom can relate to.
Jinger suffered a miscarriage last year, and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, recently opened about the heartbreaking experience.
"The morning after we announced to family that we were expecting, Jinger woke up and, woke me up very early in the morning, saying that she thought she lost the baby,” Jeremy wrote.
“We found out later that day that she had. That was very difficult and definitely a trial for us,” he added.
“Having that little one healthy in the womb, and growing strong, is so exciting," Vuolo continued.
And clearly, it's a feeling that's shared by the entire family.
“She comes up to my belly and says, ‘Baby. Baby,’” Jinger shared of Felicity's excited response.
If she's that psyched now, just wait until she meets her little sister!
Olivia Culpo knows what’s up, she’s been a proud mask wearing babe since the start of the pandemic and has even started her own brand of masks with apparently all proceeds going to charity. Culpo’s got great style, it’s part of her whole appeal in my opinion, she knew how to package herself the right way to become Miss Universe.
Here she is showing off her style in a bright hi-glo bikini and matching custom mask!

Emily Ratajkowski had to find a new thing for people to talk about so that we would stop talking about how her husband uses the n-word while she’s out protesting for black lives. She’s a walking contradiction but it’s ok because she’s hot right!? So to get people talking about her looks again she went and dyed her natural dark brown hair platinum blonde.
At first I thought it was just a wig but as you can see in the photos the model really went and had her shit bleached. I personally love the dark look on her and think this blonde just makes her look like another basic blonde chick from LA, but she seems to be loving it!

The current state of the world has spurred Meghan to greater ambitions, including a run for political office.
According to a new report by The Daily Mail, Meghan is giving real consideration to a political run.
"Meghan said her work as a leader is more important than ever right now," the insider notes.
"And that she’s been speaking with Oprah," she source adds, "and other community leaders."
The insider detail that Meghan has been speaking and thinking "on how she can be part of the solution."
“Meghan feels like her mission goes far beyond acting," the source details.
"She said she wants to use her voice for change," the insider notes.
"And," the source reveals, Meghan "hasn’t ruled out a career in politics."
Obviously, the reason that Meghan and Harry left the UK -- announcing their departure in January of this year -- was not for a political run.
They left after two years in the country because the nightmarish racist attacks against Meghan and their son had only escalated. It was too much.
But it sounds like Meghan views it as a bit of providence that she ended up in the US during this critical time of much-needed change.
According to an alleged friend of Meghan's, she experienced a “gnawing urgency to uproot from England."
Now, months later, millions of Americans are joining courageous protests from coast to coast to oppose racism and escalating police violence.
Meghan is said to feel that it was "destined" that she be here at this time.
Lady Colin Campbell is the author of an upcoming book about Meghan, and decided to weigh in.
"I know the Duchess of Sussex has political ambitions," Campbell declared.
"And," she shared, "I’ve been told that one day she wants to run for President."
"The Royal Family went out of their way to embrace her," Campbell recalls.
She says that they did so "in a way that they have never gone out of their way to embrace anybody else.”
“Meghan was the only fiancee that was ever asked to Windsor before the wedding," Campbell observes.
"And," Campbell notes, "she was the only newlywed who was invited by the queen to accompany her on a daily engagement.”
Campbell went on to add that the Queen has been observed to harbor a special fondness for Meghan.
That is no real surprise to hear, given that it is believed that Harry is her favorite grandchild.
Meanwhile, a source reminded People that Meghan and Harry are focused on charity behind the scenes.
"They have had the opportunity to speak with some incredible thought leaders," that insider noted.
"And," the source added, "those conversations have been deeply educational and helpful in identifying the work they want to with Archewell.”
The insider reported: “They are applying all their learnings to the future of the organization."
Meghan has recently had to weather a scandal by association.
After Jessica Mulroney was fired amidst accusations of racism, Meghan had to ghost her.
It has been a great reminder that having brilliant, outspoken friends of color does not innoculate white people against being tone deaf or harmful.
"Meghan is absolutely mortified that she’s been dragged into this complete mess," an inside source notes.
"She said Jessica is in no way a racist," the insdier shares.
"But," the source acknowledges, "the way she handled the situation [with Exeter] was tone-deaf and heartbreaking.”
“Meghan said friends reflect friends," the insider reports.
"And because of what’s at stake," the source grimly reveals, "she can no longer be associated with Jessica."
The insider adds: "at least not in public."
"She has to do what she has to do," the source expresses.
The insider that Meghan has to do this "in order to preserve her dignity and her own reputation."
Icing out toxic, controversial friends is a key step that anyone must take before running for public office, lending credence to these reports.
That said, we should keep in mind that The Daily Mail is reporting this, and consider the source.
Even if Meghan is really considering a run for higher office, from mayor to President, she may wait a while.
After all, even if American media is quite as brazenly racist as British tabloids, a political run would bring lots of negative, racist attention.
But we have to say ... if she gets the right political experience beforehand, Meghan could make a wonderful President one day.
